Review summary

It really was a wonderful vacation from comfort to food entertainment. The only complaint I have is smoking in casino. Other cruise lines I have been on have half smoking and other non smoking. It was difficult to play with all the smoke. So we could not spend much time in casino.

Service and Staff

Every person on this ship was so friendly and always asking if everything is okay. We spoke with one officer and got to know her. The next day in our cabin we received chocolate covered strawberries with card wishing us a pleasant vacation and how she enjoyed meeting us.

It was rather cold so walked to beach had to pay 5 euro each to enter beach. Then would have to pay for chair was water was very cold. So we just went back to ship. We were not there long enough to visit much. So I saw nothing of Bermuda. Don’t think this port was planned out just not enough time.
